Summary for Des/Paulie - YES.
Okay, In favour of this. I'm only really involved in 2 forums and it would be great to be able to ask/give staking on those 2 forums. Most of this goes on behind the scenes so why not bring into the open so to speak. (I primarily ask)
The post count is kinda of weird. Under some of the proposed numbers 100/300 I currently wouldn't qualify whilst it was quite probably someone who posts frequently would meet the post qualification regardless of the amount of online or live APAT tourneys played. (My live count is 6 - I think, JAPAT isn't official,
) - according to my profile I'm a new member. I just don't feel the need to post / have the time.
Am I more/less reliable than the high frequency poster? I do understand however that you have to put the criteria somewhere.
I really like the idea of the template (just so you can structure the arrangements in a uniform way which people can easily follow).
I think the detail - markups/EV/stats is really between those asking and staking. (Afterall most of the people on here believe that they can beat at least 50% of the players in any poker room yet we choose to all get together 6 or more times a year in said poker room! I question our decision making process when it comes to finding a good spot
I think one of the principles in poker (and staking/swopping percentages is part of that) is never put up more than you can afford and are prepared to lose. That said we're a fairly swell bunch - I know I'd rather do business with the people I've met through APAT than another well known large (US) forum.
See you at the next APAT.
